2007 Roundup.

2007 has been both the best and the worst year for me.

2007 saw me crying to bits.

As well as rejoicing and laughing after my 3.5 years of slogging it out in university.

Its been a contradictory year for me.

I wish some things wouldn't have panned out the way it did.

But this is the way the Almighty planned for me.

I may have made the plans but I need to be consistently reminded that they might not happen even with the utmost care and preparation.

I can tell you that this year has definitely tested me to my limits.

How i managed to come out of my final semester at IIUM unscathed was a miracle in itself.

I thought after all the drama that ensued i would have flunked Arabic quite badly.

But Alhamdullillah that was not the case.

Arabic could have actually served as my *penawar* while i struggled with my tumultuous personal life.

2007 also showed me its true colours.

Who are the friends that i should keep close by especially.

Those who care and those who don't.

Clearly, those that disappeared off the radar don't care.

Simple as that.

4 more months till i turn 24.


So soon?!

No use dreading it cos its going to hit me full force.


I'm also miffed and acutely aware (& incensed!) that i know now truly that its no longer about what I want.

Its more of what THEY want, and what SHE wants.

I still feel annoyed and hurt and a lot of resentment over the whole course of this year.

Especially towards one person in my life.

I just can't wait for this year to be over with so i can start the New Year with my brand new job and insyaAllah, more to look forward to in 2008.

By Accident.

I went out again yesterday.

With Azimah this time.

I've been out like 4 consecutive days with 4 different groups of people.

And i'm truly knocked out knackered.

When i was out with Kak An, i "accidentally" purchased a new bag.

It's a dark teal bag inspired by Fendi's new collection, the one with the big buckle on the front.

Kak An knocked down the price for me by almost a whole $10 bux so how could i not purchase it? Right?

Then i went out with Azimah yesterday to get her mom's b'day pressie @my aunt's shop, discount some more.

After that was settled, WE went to Marks & Spencer cos i'd been eyeing this pair of black jeans there for a while.

That was a purchase that was planned.

Then Azimah insisted on going back to Wisma Atria to Cotton Body to get the cute little pair of pyjamas that she spied with her little eye.

And i got dragged into another buying frenzy.

Really, this post-XMAS sale shopping is getting out of hand.

I bought 2 tops at Cotton On & a pair of pyjamas ($15 only!!! U.P. $29)!!!


I must go into rehab.

Or therapy at least.

Not retail therapy of course.

Wish there were a 12 step program for shopaholics here in singapore.

So, in the last 2 days that i shopped, I bought $70 worth of merchandise already.

Not counting the stuff that i bought in KL okay.

Speaking of which.

The short KL trip that we had was a blast.

We throughly enjoyed the hotel.

We got upgrades to our rooms, from a deluxe to a Club room at Hotel I*stana.

The toilet was huge!

Imagine our excitement.

We got into the room and this bathroom was AS big as the room itself.

We had bathrobes and lots and lots of fluffy towels.

2 vanity sinks.

I almost didn't want to leave the room but the stomach was churning and growling.

So where else did i bring my girls?

To Chili's of course!!

6 months of not eating Chili's hokay?
They were ecstatic upon seeing their plates of food.
*sampai tak habes makan!*

Thankfully, my plate was manageable and not too big of a portion.
So i ended up being the only person to polish off the food.

The monterey chicken was gooood! The veggies were not overdone, just right and the mashed potatoes...ummmm what can i say?


We stayed for a whole 5 hours in KLCC, shopping at Watsons (where i spent a whopping RM88 alone on toiletries), Diesel and PDI and G2000.

Azimah outdid herself.
In KLCC alone, bag dier dah beranak jadi dua haha.

After that we went to Petaling Street.

*tourist habes kitorang*

Umi got herself a pair of sexy shades and myself a Gucci bag.
The following day, we went to Masjid India.

Shopping mayhem ensued AGAIN!
We bought kain songket. Not the full kind.

For everyone of us.

Kind of like our 10 year anniversary as friends gifts.

So everyone has a designated colour.

Can't wait for them to come over tomorrow to my place where we'll be distributing them over a steamboat lunch and lazy saturday afternoon watching dvd's and playing boardgames...bliss!

Umi outdid Azimah this time by buying kain for her family members and a bag for herself.

I hope we'll make this a yearly affair. *smiles*

The more the merrier!

Happy Colours.

Cast and crew? Check!

VIPH *very impt. Honour!*? Check!

Happy, happy colours? Check!

From East Coast to City Hall, Parliament Lane to the Supreme Court.

It suddenly felt like a Learning Journey. hehe.

To the adorables and the one that couldnt make it:


My sunshines that chase my stormy weather.

May Allah protect our friendship and bring us many more years together.

-HS Crew 2004-2006-

I am still fuming.
Fuming with the injustice that was served to all the residents here at yishun st 22.
I am fuming at the idiot whose ****ing car alarm went off in the middle of the night and only went off at about 9am just now.
I felt like going down to deface the asshole's car and disarm the very ANNOYING car alarm.

*kepala hotak dier arh! frus tau tak dpt tido nyenyak!*

And the best part was that the car alarm didn't just go on and on.
It paused for like 10 seconds and started blaring.
Over & over & over again.
I may be sleeping but i am VERY sensitive towards sounds and lights when im asleep.
To that *basta* whose inconsiderate-ness spoiled my day:

"I am so gg to call the police the next time it happens."

*mengacau keamanan dan ketenteraman hidup aku je!*

Hady stole the show!

I'm still reeling from the shock!

I honestly cant imagine how He's feeling.

Well whatever it is...

Hady! You made Singapore proud!

*thank gawd my 3 votes weren't wasted*

But actually half the time i thought that Mike had the competition in the bag.

The judges must be eating their words now heheheh.

But like they say, winner takes all honey!

Congrats again Hady Mirza! Our first Asian Idol!

Partied Out.

Yesterday was a good day.

A good day for a birthday party that is.

And i must say, it was the best birthday bash i've been to in a while.

It felt really posh and VIP-like.

Check out the RockStar Studios the next time you want a jamming session or in this case a birthday party with a twist.

This is no ordinary jamming studio.


Its got a stage and the room was all decked out in this cool maroon hue completed with maroon drapes behind the drum set.

Complemented by the black sofas and marble-topped tables (with a bar counter too!) and parquet flooring.

-the bar with its own separate seating-

It was the perfect setting to celebrate my good friend Kak Su's birthday.

-guest & Bday gerl!-

Being manager to a couple of rock bands in the local rock scene (if my memory serves right), it was only fitting to have a few bands perform for this special night.

KnightWings, Opurzit Youth & 4gifted were one of the few bands that played yesterday night.

So, entertainment wise, everything was covered.

The food combination was also spectacular.

Simple finger food (mini popiah rolls, choc eclairs stuffed with the creamiest filling and cream puffs) teamed with beehoon goreng and pizza, it couldn't have been more perfect.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself!

-tons of birthday booty!-

And who knew there was a Rocker in me all along?

I even dressed the part hahah.

Black tudung paired with grey babydoll-ish top with black longsleeved shirt and my jeans.

I even wore my lash falsies *becos tgh feeling mentel* and lots of kohl eyeliner.

The venue, food and entertainment was a perfect combination.

I couldn't ask anything more for a spectacular party.

But wait! There's more!.

Kak Su's friend was having their solemnization ceremony on the same day and decided to drop in on the festivities which led it to being a 2-in-1 combo for all the guests.

They even came in all their wedding finery.

*it also makes for something special in their wedding video lemme tell you!*

The sporting groom even got on stage to sing for his new bride

(Lagu dari kumpulan Lefthanded beb!), complete with the baju kurung and songket.

So the night became even merrier!

-b'day gerl with her 2 nieces and Brother-

-the FROZEN ice-cream cake-

Yes, I unfortunately didn't get to eat the cake. Boo hooo...

-baby tido pun hisap jari RAWK you!-

Pics will be up soon.

And thanks again Kak Su for the most amazing Saturday night i've had in AGES!

*beaming with happiness*

Who doesn't have a friendster acct these days.

This is soooo frustrating!

*Just needed to vent*


Thursday, December 13, 2007


Clearly everyone is confused and getting a bit wound up about my state of affairs.


Let me the clear the air.

#3 is NOT the 3rd crush of this month.

There are only currently 2.

And no Suli, this ISN'T the one that you know about. Hehehehe

I know it seems a bit much right?

But what's a single girl to do but fill her idle mind with fantasies of the opposite sex.


*cocks head in a coquettish manner*

But the earlier crush i had seems to be fading.

So i might just be left with ONE.

One BIG crush on #3.

Let me relish the thought of #3 by myself for a while.

As it is, i have no intention of giving out details on my blog.

Because, like i've said before, Singapore is too small.

Our own social circles might cross between each other.

And i don't want to embarass myself greatly because WE might just cross paths soon enough.

Right now, im still deciding on whether to go on the 31st. Cos its gonna last all day and all night!!!

Decisions, decisions.

Anyway, i hope i've put a lot of your minds to rest.

You don't have to do a strenuous workout on ur brain to figure it out k?

Now get back to your homework/work people!



p/s: Did i mention that i spent the whole of last weekend at the Asia Pacific Floorball Championships? Arrrghhhh! So much eye candy!
This is what is probably prompting me to pick that stick up again.
Which reminds me, i need a new blade and grip!
My grip is crumbling and ratty!

Wednesday, December 12, 2007


My absence can be justified by the sore back that i am having.

I don't know what possessed me to join their training session.

I mean the median age of all the players was 17!!!!

I must have hit my head with my stick.

But i am paying for it now.

I have a sore back. Very sore.

I am still considering playing again.

Gosh its been a long time.

Hey but who know's, maybe if i get myself involved again i might bump into #3 again!


Ahahkz. I'm gg boy-crazy for real.

I'm just waiting for the 31st.

Hopefully HE will be there.

I must be driving everyone CRAZY haha.

Nvm, some things are better kept to myself.



Saturday, December 08, 2007

Oh Boy.

I've been very religious about updating all of a sudden.

I dunno why.

Blogging for me comes in spurts. hehe.

Anyway, i just had to come online because i have a confession to make.

I am going boy crazy.

I know if Suli's reading this she'll be like grinning from ear to ear.

So will Kho.

My bestie Huda will think im off my rocker.

Nora will laugh. Ahakz.


neway bende ni semua ikut musim. teeheehee.

Yes people.

I now have a new object of affection.

He's not so tall, he's good-looking (in my eyes of course), athletic *swoons*.

I told you i'm going boy-crazy.

Don't say i didn't warn you.

And i've developed a liking for the no.3.

Of course i can't tell you who and where i met him because S'pore is too small :D

So let me just keep you all in suspense.

But the downside is; i won't be able to see him after tomorrow.


Oh well, that's what infatuations are for.

They're only there for the short term hehehe.

Just pray that i'll bump into him again someday will you? ;)


Friday, December 07, 2007

This girl.

This girl is smiling/crying all the way to the bank.

Cos i went shopping AGAIN yesterday with my mom and aunts.

U guys must be furrowing ur brows and asking why the hell i'd go out shopping with them right?

Gg out with them always has its perks.

Like the fact that they will foot ur lunch/dinner bill hahaha.

But there is also another perk.

Gg out shopping with them also entitles you to another 10% off on top of the 30% discount offered at Island Shop.

So what did i do yesterday?

I topped up my wardrobe AGAIN by getting a nice long white tunic and the softest brown cotton pants at Island shop (and doing further damage to my bank account no doubt).

I'll be collecting my new booty on saturday *thanks to the $300-a-day limit that my aunt put on her citibank card heheh*

Plus, i'll be getting just ONE more purchase frm M&S.

The nicest pair of faded grey stonewashed denims (gg for $39 using my aunt's Robinson's card).

I'm dead set about NOT spending more than like $50 for any article of clothing.

Because i'm frugal like that (NOT).


Anyway, the next time you call me on my mobile, I'll be saying:

"Hello, B*ig F*ish Publishing, Maryam speaking."

I got the job! *smiles all around*


Will update soon about the interview, heh.

And my very nice boss!


Thursday, December 06, 2007

It all falls down.

It has been pouring and pouring and pouring.


Its soooo cooolldddd.

And my nerves are starting to get to me.

Yes i do have that interview at 2pm today.

Gawd, its nerrrrvvveee-wrecking.

To calm my nerves yesterday, i went a little overboard with my shopping.

A little is an understatement actually.

I bought my lash falsies (cos im lazy to put on mascara oredi hehe), lots of clothes frm this shop at Wisma (Cotton On), my facial wash, my absolute necessity; kohl eyeliner, shoes (for the interview), and a nice new belt.

I think i blew more than a 100 bucks yesterday.

Oh well, at this rate im not gg to spend much in KL hehe.

Not that i've really shopped that much in KL before.

This excludes DVDs and VCDs k pple.

Well next week i'll probably be working part-time again.


At least that means that the bank account won't dry up frm all the excess shopping.

And i definitely can't wait for 2moro.

I mean, when was the last time YOU went to the Science Centre pple?

So pls excuse the nerves and the excitement.


Tuesday, December 04, 2007

I'm Laughing!

Not only did i get mystery sms last night.

But i have a date tonight.

Not mr-mystery-sms guy...noooo.

Can i just get you to wonder a little longer?

I can safely say i'm slowly getting over him.

I promised myself: No more phone calls or smses.

What's important is that i'm going on a DATE tonight!

Bee Movie it is lah. *i know, i am sooooo basi right?*


*crosses fingers and toes for a confirmation!*

Label reads: Easily Excitable.

*dreamy sigh*

call me a fool.

i think i've got a CRUSH.

*the last one being Mr. Prince of Egypt aka the guy that almost toppled the tong sampah*

that was AGES ago.

heheh *senyum mentel* malam-malam pun sanggup dier sms.

i shall go to bed a happy lass.

good nyte!

Of Eskimo Pies & the Keeper of Secrets

Eskimo Pie, a year after their Asian Beats win.

After a few smses frm Suli, we managed to finally get our butts down to PS to watch
Abg Ard perform.
The last time i saw him perform was 2 years ago at Suntec for the Anugerah Planet Muzik.
It was so nice to see him again! And Abg, your malay songs rock my socks more than your english ones heheh.
Almost didn't make it for the gig though AND i thought i was really late.
Turns out, when i reached the venue at ard 6.30ish, they had just begun to play.
So i didn't miss a beat.
*Isabella done Linkin Park style??? Abg you fooled me & Suli through and through!*
So after that, me and her *the very angry and confused one* took a little walk around PS to go look for some school supplies seein that she needs some for her FINAL semester at IIUM, u go gerl!
Then we headed over to Starbucks for some starbucking moments.
And of all the people i bumped into was my sister's ex.
Aish u are so cute! You haven't changed a single bit and i love that! Ahakz. Happily protecting VIPs now he is :D

Me & Suli went off *seeing that she had to pack for her 8.30am bus tomorrow* and...
We were greeted by a "surprise".
Clearly, someone thinks that i cannot be trusted and so i was smsed.
Could not help BUT feel slightly insulted *yet strangely amused and a tad bit disappointed too*
Oh well, i shall become your keeper of secrets but don't be surprised.
We parted ways and i came down with the most excruciating pounding of fists in my frontal lobe.
Thank gawd the Solpadeine worked its magic an here i am finishing this blog entry.
On other fronts, i am missing the uia gerls. A lot. I think this is what they call withdrawal symptoms.
Oh, and i have to give a big shoutout to my bestie Huda who listened to my frustrations and being patient with me and helping me out.
I wouldn't have gotten that interview without u babe.
Thanks a million :D

Kun Fayakun.

Y'day was marked as a first for me.

Personally, i felt that i stepped out of my comfort zone for a while.

I dunno, it just feels different than what im normally used to.

I'm sure you must be wondering what the hell i'm talking about.

Its got something to do with the title.

But i can't let out too much cos there may be pple secretly reading this.

But i can tell you one thing, i thought that there was PLENTY of eye-candy.


That is so Maryam.

And then last night azimah kept me up on the phone.

I was half-asleep in my darkened bedroom speaking to azimah. That was also a first for me.

Well, whatever you decide dear, you noe i have your back.

Gd luck with the istikharah.


Tuesday, November 20, 2007


Its been a long time since i've fallen sick.

I think my body's trying to tell me to take a break.

Which i will.

Some time in December that is.

2007, end sooner please.

Why? Cos so far, 2007 sucks.

Convocation not withstanding.

pro·fuse /prəˈfyus/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[pruh-fyoos] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
spending or giving freely and in large amount, often to excess; extravagant (often fol. by in): profuse praise.
made or done freely and abundantly: profuse apologies.
abundant; in great amount.

In my case, its my snot, or rather, water that seems to be running like a tap to no end.

My eyes are also watery.

My head is heavy and i just want to sleep it off.

I was roused at 2.30am this morning by my sister's sewing.

And thus after that, i couldn't go back to sleep.

And my face, especially under my eyes have been puffy.

*muka aku macam retain water*

Not a pretty sight.

5.30pm....come sooner!


Wednesday, November 14, 2007

Pardon Me.

Pardon me for the lack of updates.

I have been f***ing knackered beyond belief.

Ooops. Excuse my french.

I've been temping at ITE HQ at Dover.

So that means that i have to get up even earlier and travel all the way to the West side of the island.

And i hate to say this but i am your typical kiasu Singaporean.

I will practically RUN for an empty seat.

Cmon. If you had to travel from yishun to jurong east interchange WOULD you stand?

And my bedtime has consistently gotten earlier and earlier.

And sometimes i feel like there are heavy weights on my eyes when im in the office.

What with the airconditioning at a very nice and comfortable setting which is VERY conducive for sleeping.

So yes.

I will make rare appeareances on this very dusty blog until the next month.

So toodles now cos the bed is calling.


p.s.: i passed my ept!

Thursday, November 01, 2007

I Hate That I STILL Love You.

With all the developments that have been going on,

*plus the Raya madness that is still going strong*

it comes as no surprise that i havent had time to blog.

side-track:Rihanna and Ne-Yo's song have been playing incessantly in my head and its disturbing how much this song affects me.

Besides the loss of one of my main income sources come this november and december, i have been scouring all over for something to tide me over.

Alhamdullillah, He has answered my prayers.

This many surprises and changes.

Changes that im still trying to adjust to.

Aaaarrgghhhh..there are days that i would just love to scream my head off in agony.

I am frustrated at some level but somehow strangely settled.

Forgive me for being so vague.

I am tired from all the Raya-ing.

And i have been unwillingly volunteered for my mom's perjumpaan raya RGS and RI.

And then another perjumpaan raya under ASSIIUM.

The madness.

To all frens in UIA still having exams : ALL THE BEST!

Now let me continue wallowing in my misery.


p/s: Nora, i'll do the thing soon yah. sorry mood lah.

Monday, October 15, 2007


Like some i'm unhappy.


Cos i JUST realised like a few minutes ago that my pic that was taken at my grandparents place did not have ME in it!

Boooooo hooooo...

And now i have NO gambar raya of that particular baju.

Darn. suay.

Anyway, i think its fitting that this is the 4ooth post.

Cos i just want to say that I, Maryam Mohammad Sesth, had to take the EPT (that is the english proficiency test for those of you not in the know) today.

Yes, Maryam Mohammad Sesth, the English Graduate, had to sit for the NIE/NTU EPT in order to be considered for a teaching post.

Go figure!

So yes, i came back at around 4.30pm after sitting for a whole day of testing.


*it really does insult my intelligence to be treated this way...hmmmpppfff*

But anyway, i had a bit of a leg up on the listening comprehension section.

It was a passage about "Introduction To Language".

Hohohoho...and truly enough i could answer one question without even listening to the passage.

So that means out of a hundred questions, im guaranteed ONE correct answer.


Honestly, i'm like dead tired!

I have been baking biscuits and cookies and i smell like cookie dough.

I've also been busy baking cakes (where i still gladly accept orders, SGD25 for a 1-1.5kg moist choc cake).

One truly satisfied customer is Nurul Khasanah Binte Agost.

Pls ask her if u are not convinced heheh.

So besides smelling like cake mixture and cookie dough, i also smell of paint fumes.

Yeah i FINALLY managed to finish off the last few bits on the wall, those tricky corners. And mind you, i had to do it ALONE.

Yes, i have been a one man show for the past few months. Especially during THIS particular Ramadhan.

Alhamdullillah, our family did not miss a single sahur session. Amin.

So now i want to wish all my Muslim friends in singapore and abroad a very merry Eid.

Eid Mubarak to all of you.

If i have in any way hurt your feelings or have been harsh and rude towards you, please forgive me. For I am only a human being. With that said:

To Err is Human, To Forgive; Divine.


Tuesday, October 02, 2007


You guys should check this out.

Stupidly funny.


Enjoy the rest of your week!


Monday, September 24, 2007

Disconsolately Yours.

Its been a rough couple of weeks.

Especially with my sleeping patterns so out of whack these days.

At this moment, ive practically reached my breaking point.

With my student driving me up the wall with her lack of focus and drive.

And i'm the one who's nervous cos she's going to be sitting for her PSLE's next week.

Oh God. Pls help her. She really needs some divine intervention at this point of time.

'Cos i obviously can't make miracles.

On other fronts, well...lets just say i'm a bit upset with things.

It doesn't matter that i've even got an honours degree.

Cos it just doesn't cut it for them.

But my spirit is definitely not broken. I will continue trying.

I will DIE trying.

Cos at this stage, really, i literally have nothing to lose.

I feel lost.

I feel traumatised not being in a classroom with desks and chairs and books and lecturers/teachers around me.

If you ask my best friends, they will definitely say that i adore school.

To the point that one of them said that i was so revolting cos i was a teacher's pet.


It definitely carried on all the way till uni.

Can't help it if i have the people skills to win them over do i? *hahahahaha*

Still, i don't seem to be winning people over right now.

Which is defnitely making me one very frustrated woman.


Saturday, September 15, 2007


That's how i feel right now.

If u manage to get hear the song (yes, it is the BSB).

I'm still not over them if you're wondering.

Why inconsolable?

Just because of all the things that have happened of late.

Is it a sign of permanence?

And the irritability recently, has gone through the roof.

Stop asking THE question.

Ask me something else.

I'm not about to be made a fool AGAIN.

Not so soon anyway.

Ramadhan is here again.

Wow. A complete turn around compared to last year.

And we're back to square one.

My whole life seems to be about repetition.

The way i see it: its like a bad record that keeps on playing.

The screeching tones and melody that jars all the memories of past.

Forgive my incoherent ramblings of a lost soul.

Missing the ramadhan & iftars under the blue tiled roofs...


Sunday, September 02, 2007


Sorry for the long absence. Its just been crazy and tiring.
A lot of unexpected things happened last week.
With one of them being me going back to singapore only on a thursday on an executive coach
(which cost me a friggin' RM60)

Well its not so bad considering i got to sleep all the way from KL to Yong Peng. That's like more than a 3 hr nap.

So really.
I'm not complaining.

Save for the fact the the weather was extreme.
It was scorching hot one minute then pouring like it never rained for months.

So how was the convocation like you ask?

It was awesome with a capital A!
I'll just let the rest of the pics do the talking for me.

Me & my singaporean mates

zafirah & me.
hey! we did it girl!

thanks for all the times u let me bunk at your place during exams! :D
love u suli! <3

me & my chuffed parents

'cos im always going to be daddy's girl! :D

this is becos adam took the best pic so it deserves to go here, hehe.

I daresay that this is the proudest moment in my life!

All the tears and the slogging and the commuting.

It was all worth it.

It wouldn't be complete without my supportive grandparents that have seen me through my dengue fever, my food poisoning and fever moments.

Thankfully they saw me through all those times. I wouldn't have gotten through it were it not for them.

And of course my rascal of a brother. For always making "my-blood-go-upstairs".


Anyway, most of my pics will go up on my multiply soon. So keep reading yeah.

For all the times that i thought i wouldn't survive.

Thank you Allah for blessing me with the best parents ever.

What Have We Here?

My thoughts just meandered their way here...


4 more days...

Its 4 days till i leave for KL.

For a break between the tuition-ing.

Thank God.

Speaking of tuition, i received my payment on thursday and proceeded to put the money into the bank account.

And that particular night, the depositing machine decided to swallow up my money. The machine read: Transaction Error. Your money has been kept in the machine for safety purposes.


Yes. And i had to call the bank to find out where my money went.

The customer service officer told me that this unfortunate incident that i had placed myself in was to be put in investigation.

But all is well now.

I got an sms frm the bank saying that they credited the money back into my account already. Thank God.

So? Shall i splurge on that pretty tan brown leather bag i saw at Ink at J8?

Decisions, decisions hehe.

The past week has actually been rather kind.

With the exception of the unfortunate incident with the depositing machine on thursday that is.

I bumped into Qhuzaimah at CausewayPoint on wednesday and she invited me to join her and seri for dinner at Pizza Hut! It was a special treat from her. :D

Thank You Zaimah!

Then yesterday, i had an impromptu dinner with zak, azimah and hafiz.

We even played some games.

That was the icing on the cake.

From "The first thing that i'm thinking of" to Fuzzy Wuzzy and BangBang.

I had no doubt that we were the loudest lot of people at TehTarik last night.

I can't wait for our 1st September date!

You guys always make me smile.

That's why people say that "Old is Gold"

One of the few people that know how to really make me laugh and unwind.

Thanks guys.

The tears have subsided, finally.

But im sure that it was just PMS and not me.


Thursday, August 09, 2007

Happy 42nd Birthday!

I miss you guys!

U know who you are! :D

I think its all the reminiscing of all the National Day's that i've missed over the past 3 years.

I still remember the Home Away From Home program we had during my time as EXCO.

That gorgeous cake. :D

Suli, stay tough okay? If i can go through a lot of heartache and pain the last sem, im pretty confident that u can make it through with flying colours too.

Take a look at this site. I'm somewhere in the front row.

On another note, I love my AI peeps too!

You guys still rock my socks lah!

Thanks Sree for sending me all the way back to my block, i was absolutely touched!

It still goes to show that there are still nice guys around.

And also to my dear Aisyah Spec, CONGRATS! I'm so happy for u!

Salam manis to all my friends at KL...another 2 weeks to go till i see u all.

I 've not blogged so long that i might have forgotten how to.

The point is,

I'm just too lazy to switch on the laptop OR i simply haven't got the energy to blog.

But then today is a special day.

Its special cos i met up with the babes (and one guy) haha.

We went to Pitstop cafe and had the BESTest time EVER.

Trust me when i say that it was the bestest time ever.

I laffed till tears streamed out of my eyes and even my head throbbed after laffing SO MUCH.

Our source of entertainment,

mindless card games that had us screaming like banshees and fingers that got hurt by pressing a bell.

And i spilled my drink.

That's how rowdy it got.

We played SmartAss (and i mean that quite literally), Ugly Dollie (or was it doll), some counting game where we had to match the same fruits till the number 5 and some sound making game.

Oh. my. God.

It was so hilarious!

I can't believe how much fun we had!

Azimah was really really funny.

Whenever i keep replaying that scene in my head i just want to burst out laffing.

I wished that we had actually recorded the whole session.

*grinning like an insane idiot*

Mindless games i like.

We've already planned to make another outing to Pitstop soon. InsyaAllah.

To all my UIA frens, lets go when u're having your mid-term break.

You will definitely enjoy the atmosphere!

To my girls (and Hafiz): I loved the time we spent together! Thank God for friends like you! It really makes my day and sends all the dark clouds away.

Initially earlier this week, i was feeling really depressed and i was crying till i fell asleep.

Feelings of worthlessness and unworthiness seemed to just creep back into me.

Thankfully, the clouds have lifted.

Thank you to ALL my friends.

Thanks Nora kerana melayankan i last night! :D I miss our late night chats and gossip!

I hope next wednesday will materialise, cos i really would love to meet the AI crew, Devilic Angels and the rest.

7 years on and im already reminiscing.

Belum lagi 10 tahun grad dari sec sch.

Anyway, i should go to bed now.

Diana's wedding tomorrow...

That's gonna be another AI reunion in itself.

Not bad for a more-than-a-week-long hiatus.

Till then.

Whoever YOU are...

I know your heart was in the the right place but it didn't have to go so far as to leave him a comment or a message.

Especially on Friendster.

It was chivalrous but it kinda backfired.

Cos right now, im at the receiving end.

And YOU who have been so unkind in words, if YOU were so unhappy with what was said,

couldn't YOU have msged him YOURSELF and settle with him.

Why make me out to be the culprit?

Sorry, i forgot. You don't know how to work Friendster.

My bad.

Mirror mirror on the Wall.

It has been a very LONG and trying week.

Least of all the trip that i took to KL.

I made it in one piece, although i was worried about my safety.

But alhamdullillah i reached UIA close to 6.30pm on wednesday and even managed to hit the pasar malam once more.

I went boggle eyed at all the DVDs.

I bought Transformers, License to Wed, Ocean's 13, 300, and of course Fantastic Four.

I didn't even wait to get home to watch the dvds.

The moment i settled into Suli's room, we flipped open her swanky laptop and watched License to Wed together with Za.

The clearance went very smoothly. Very unexpected. but im glad that it was over quickly.

Thanks to all my mates especially Suli and Dayah for putting me up in your rooms. Much appreciated.

At this point i can't wait to convo!

I mean it is the highlight of the whole journey of receiving your degree.

Wearing the gown...*unfortunately UIA has got not mortarboard. im kinda bummed*

I'm having a rush akin to a sugar high just by talking about it. :D

Anyway, im not bummed out about the whole issue that got me down the whole of last weekend.

I'm over it.

I mean if he's ready to move on then so be it.

If it really makes him happy, then i'll just be glad for him. *even if it kills me to say it*

Well then, whats with the title to today's post?

It's got to do with the mirror in my bathroom.

One of the clips decided to give way after 10 years of dutiful service.

So now, there isn't a mirror in the bathroom.

Which really strikes me as weird.

All you see on the wall is the wall behind which the mirror used to be placed.

I mean a bathroom MUST have a mirror!

Okay i can see some pple trying to make sense of what i just typed above. Haha.

Anyway, i would like to wish a certain Netty Ryanie Kamaruzaman, Selamat Pengantin Baru!You look gorgeous (as always!)

It was great being there at your wedding. The decor was great and the food was MARVELLOUS *even though i didn't get to try them all. but just looking at it already made my mouth water.*

It was nice to see a lot of old faces.

The ones from secondary school.

I never thought that we'd all grow up.

It seems only like yesterday that we were in school, attending the classes and sitting for the exams.

And one by one you're all getting married.

Its like one BIG wake up call after another.

In two weeks time Diana is getting married. And in October, Eliza.

Geez...korang semua pakat ke nak kawen tahun ni? Hehe

Like i said to Huda earlier today, i like that warm fuzzy feeling in my tummy.

Weddings I like!

In 2 weeks time, the 3 musketeers unite! Thank God.

For a moment it felt a bit weird NOT having Rock around.

Anyhow, its time for bed and im pooped!

This Sux.

I've been moping the past few days.

I don't know why.

Maybe its the PMS coupled with the SURPRISE that i found out on saturday.

I've been extremely moody and grumpy.

I guess the trip to KL tomorrow is coming at an apt time.

In the mean time, i'm mulling over tomorrow's interview...

*what to wear? what to say?*

The Ego Takes A Bruise.

I've been replaced.

And it HURTS like hell.



Tuesday, July 10, 2007


Since i've started to tutor, ive been pretty LAAAAZZZYYYYY.

But pls dun get me wrong hor.

I've done nothing other than housework.

And that itself just saps SO much energy.

-im starting to sound very much like a desperate housewife-

hey but everything's good. alhamdullillah.

my name is officially on the graduates list! *yeay-ness*

and i'll probably be heading over to KL next week to do my clearance.

plus i'll have my babe Azimah with me.

*Wheeeeeeeeeeeeee* shopping with Zimah will be crazy ;) kewl

The results didn't get me jumping up and down with joy.

But alhamdullillah i've passed. With a respectable grade.

Anyway, im gonna get off the pc now cos i have to get ready for tuition later in the evening.

-I'm missing you guys! Boo more teh ais :(

Hullo? Anybody there?

I know i havent been updating much. I've been busy. Yes...amidst all the chores.

I haven't really been watching tv. Only on weeknights do i get to catch up with my tv shows.

In the daytime its all chores.

Today has proved that i am kinda getting mixed up with all my schedules.

I've successfully gotten 2 tuition assignments and alhamdullillah, they're both in the north area (both ONE bus ride, save on my transport money hurhur)

I started on tuesday and i had another tuition session yesterday.

I THOUGHT i had another tuition session today in yishun.

I even ironed out all my clothes and my tudung and about 25 minutes ago, i checked my calendar and LO & BEHOLD

No tuition today.


Oh well...

Back to watching Emil Emilda on youtube.

This and other pictures can be found

the 3 lovely ladies *grins*
selamat "mengangkat sumpah" girls hehehe...

Because everyone else seems to not want to "halo" me, i guess this is for the best.

People, pls scroll down the sidebar to make use of my tagboard okay??

So what have i been up to this past week.

I didn't really leave the house.

Although i did go to the pasar malam next to the yishun mrt station.

*i had a serious hankering for vadai* (p/s: it was REALLY good!)

What i've done this past week was:

1) do laundry (hanging & folding)

have i mentioned how much i HATE folding the clothes?

2) cook

3) clean the house, the room (and pretty much everything else that needs cleaning)

4) watch tv. (although i haven't gotten around to watch tv till it explodes, i'll make gd on my promise *winks to Nora*)

5) missing "someone" like crazy (NO, i haven't gotten over it yet.)

6)look for employment.

7) waiting for "THE" letter.

So yeah, that's most of it.

The good news is, i've already got 2 tuition assignments. *Yeay*

So that means some moolah so that's kinda pleasing to the pocket (esp. with the GST increase this SUNDAY)

Now that my grandmother is here for the weekend, i'll be accompanying her to her hospital and polyclinic appointments.

I can't wait to go to Sentosa next Monday! Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!


*note to self: I am NOT going to the Christina Concert. Boo hoo. :( *

Just Beachy!

*hint hint* that was the bag for the matches the theme for the day!

that's another hint. the contrast between the green and the blue, i just love it!

I love being home!

there's another OBVIOUS was still early so there weren't that many pple around. the guys in the background were skimming on the waves.

I went to the beach; with my girlies!

from left: Shahidah, Azimah & Zakiah

Below are the gerls setting up...

that was our lunch for the day: azimah's famed mac and chicken salad! its yummy and always a crowd pleaser :D

i call this pic...windswept

We played this by the beach...

Monopoly; the Uniquely Singapore Edition

that's my token, the Merlion

shahidah the trishaw, zak the singapura Cat, Azimah the one with the flashy car and thats me at the end.

getting into the swing of things...

All those are my properties. But even that didn't stop me from going BANKRUPT!

At the end of over 4 hours of play, i was declared bankrupt after landing on som very pricey property.

What caused my demise... landing on expensive property with FOUR houses on it!
I owed like $20 000+++

Azimah owned the MOST expensive properties with 4 houses on each of the Blue strips!

Even after mortgaging my property, i still couldn't cover the rent!

All in all, Azimah was made the rightful winner.

She wiped me out DRY.
You know the expression "kering kontang"?

That was EXACTLY it.

After a long day at the beach (the weather was really² good! and really² windy!)

We packed up and left for home at 5.30pm

I really enjoyed the trip. I was practically squealing when i got to the beach. :D

Even though i lost, i still ended up with a smile on my face.

Home Sweet Home (For Good!)

Reached home close to 9am this morning.

I'm exhausted.

The mental and physical exhaustion that is.

I'm finally home and i've more or less graduated.

Now to wait for the exam results.

Suddenly the 3rd of July seems sooooo long.

I want to say a heartfelt thanks to Nora especially for putting up with my hormonal urges (food-wise yah!) and my emotional moodswings.

Thanks for listening to me gripe.

Thanks for the2 most memorable sessions at Chili's! (and the Caramel Mocha Frappucino with Java Chip ---> skrg tgh mengidam White Choc Blended from Coffee Bean hohoho)

I still crave those southwestern eggrolls & mashed potatoes.

Kalau i pregnant one day and i crave those foods, matilah suami saya *harhar*

Ok, i've had enough of staring at the computer screen.
I'm going to take a nice Long HOT shower and SLEEP!

*yeay! i survived 3.5 years of cold showers. Back to my normal routine!*


p/s: the papers went well alhamdullillah. I could actually do the arabic exam paper!

One for the road...

Just wanted to make another quick entry.

One more week here and i will officially be a graduate come 18th of June. (more like the 17th June after 11am. just to be precise haha.)

Thank you to all who have supported me through thick and thin.

If i have offended you in any way, please forgive me.

I don't think i'll be blogging until i get back to singapore that is.

2 more exams.

13th: Literary Theory and Criticism (3pm)

17th: Foreign Language for BENL (aka Arabic) (9am)

After that im home FREEE!

I plan to take the train back home.

It will be a solo journey.

Got lots of thinking to do.

*Although i probably think i will be thinking in my sleep*

Come the 18th i will be celebrating my new status with my family (and celebrating my cuzzin's 21st bday also)


One more week.

This will undoubtedly be the LONGEST week of them all.

Pray for me k guys.

Hugs, love and kisses

My Word Of The Day...

Chili's (NOT k.a.n.t.o.i)

i love the decor and the menu too!

the look of pure concentration...

so many nice things to try....hmmm...should i try the monterey chicken

or should i try the country fried chicken???

this is the before pic.

this was ms. mourinho's

this was mine.

the chicken was fried perfectly. it was nice & tender.

the whipped potato was the best i've ever tasted in my whole entire life.

its creamy goodness would just send you to heaven and back again.

the corn.

oh. my. god.

no words can explain. i had never been a big fan of corn up until last friday.

the corn was steamed to perfection with the perfect blend of cajun spices and butter.

this was how the meal ended.

a perfect meal; with cherry on top.

which is why i looked so happy and content last friday evening.

thanks for the company ms. nore!

Chili's again when i come for clearance?

Yes please!


p/s: more pics coming your way!
